OK I just felt like saying that. So now that I work in the federal government in another agency other than DOD, I really do miss the Department of the Army and the 82nd AB. I can tell you what, they have a lot of team spirit and morale. Whenever we had Brigade or Unit events, it was no doubt everyone was all highspeed and hooah. My agency doesn’t have that bond or team spirit, it is quite saddening, but hey what can I do? Now I did have the pleasure of working in the 82nd and USASOC and my husband was attached to the 82nd AB, he is a leg, and probably will be, he told me that he is considering it, so we’ll see.
I do have my necklace and my 82 AB Division Flag
If you haven’t seen this chorus in person you haven’t lived. It isn’t nothing in the world that can compare to the 82nd SB Chorus signing and wow the you tube video doesn’t do them JUSTICE. I have heard them sing maybe 6 times in person and it only gets better. Listen to the video and tell me didn’t you feel just a little bit better after listening to them? I do miss listening to the cadence early in the mornings, and the 5pm cannon, and the stopping and saluting. I also miss the spirit of the 18th AB Corps and 82nd AB Division, and the brief USASOC soldiers I had the pleasure of working with.
